Year R’s Very First Assembly!

Today. children in the Reception class performed their class assembly to the whole school, with an excellent information about their work in school. Image result for supertato

Starfish and Seahorse classes told the school about their work on looking after the duck eggs, as well as their visit to the local farm with Bedenham school too. They also presented their work on SuperPotato – showing us a range of their work and drawings. They explained that the evil pea had stolen their class teddy, which the children then had to use clues to save him!

They also showed us a selection of their superhero outfits, which the Starfish and Seahorses have been wearing in lessons too! They also performed a great song by the “Let’s Go Heroes” which the children sang along to as well.

A brilliant assembly, where children were very brave to speak to the whole school (and their parents) in a very busy school hall. Well done!

Year R Spring Term 2 Newsletter…

Dear Parents and carers,

Welcome back to school after a soggy half term. I am looking forward to the first signs of spring and some nicer weather.

Last half term was very busy after the Christmas break. Year 4 children were amazing ambassadors for the school on their residential at Fairthorne Manor, they were adventurous and keen to try lots of new things whether it was abseiling or carrot and coriander soup! Year 6 wowed their parents with some excellent monster dance and their gruesome Frankenstein writing. Year 2 showed their charitable nature and held a sale for an African Charity following their work looking at life in Kenya. Year 3 were exploring life at Hogwarts and producing some excellent newspaper articles and diary entries written as either a witch or wizard. Some even tried to write as Draco Malfoy. Meanwhile, Year 5 have been exploring what it is like in Space and writing some haikus about getting old! They are well worth a read. Year 1 have been busy learning about African animals and enjoying the drum workshops along with the Year 1 classes at Bedenham. Finally, Year R have been celebrating Chinese New Year and enjoying ordering meals at their in class Chinese take away. They have been practising their chop sticks skills too!

This half term promises to be just as busy! Please enjoy the newsletters blogs to read more about what your child has been getting up to and what is coming up for them this half term.

I look forward to seeing lots of you in school again this half term, your support is very important to your children.

Mrs Zoë Dudley

Head of School.

 

 

Dear Parents and carers,

The children have settled well after the excitement of February half term and have had an amazing first week back – book week! Thank you if you joined us for a successful breakfast book snuggle. We also saw lots of lovely book characters for dress up day.

We have lots to look forward to during this half of spring term. Mothers day is fast approaching and children are getting gifts and performances prepared ready for a Mother’s Day afternoon tea (Friday 9th March, 2:15pm). Following on from the children’s interests we are excited about visits from Mrs Messem and Miss Birks, they are kindly bringing in their babies. The children have been writing questions to ask, ready for their visit.

Easter is approaching quickly, the children will be looking at this in more detail and having fun with some craft activities.

Mrs Pringle and Miss Coleman
